"outfront" tonight, a shocking new poll. women in the swing states in this country rank abortion as their number one issue in this election. gallup asked female voters an open-ended question. literally this, name the most important issue in 2012, and tops the list was abortion with 39% of the women responding. 19% said jobs and then you can see health care, economy and equal rights. during the biggest economic crisis of this generation, in fact of the past few generations, the biggest issue to 39% is abortion. so far this year we've seen almost every poll rate the economy and jobs as the top concern for all voters. we said let's look at recent polls and what they said. we found this. pew gave women a list of issues and said which are very important to your vote. 54% was abortion. granted, that's not as high as the 89% that said the economy or t

and the united states was very unfortunate. i think also pulling our missile defense program out of poland in the way we did was also unfortunate in terms of if you will, disrupting the relationship in some ways that existed between us. then of course, with regards to standing for our principles, when the students took to the streets in tehran and the people there protested, the green revolution occurred for. for the president to be silent i thought was an enormous mistake. we have to stand for our principles, stand for our allies, stand for a stronger military and stand for a stronger economy. >> mr. president. >> america remains the one indispensable nation. and the world needs a strong america and it is stronger now than when i came into office. because we ended the war in iraq, we were able to refocus our attention on not only the terrorist threat but also beginning a transition process in afghanistan. it also allowed us to refocus on alliances and relationships that had been neglected for a decade. governor romney, our alliances have never been stronger. in asia, in europe, in africa,
opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighting efforts led by the then-senior virginia senator. when someone who will fight and that is what i will do is your next to none state senator. >> if mr. allen, your opening statement. >> thank you. it's much better future than what we are having to endure these days. that is why i put forward a detailed plan. my blueprint for america to get an economy and stronger jobs. the question is which one of us can be accounted upon. you may have read an article that was comparing our two governorships. the call me when the most accomplished modern governors with major improvements in public education, safety, welfare reform, a
now, is a strong china and a strong united states to lead the rest of the world out of this growing recession and to pick on china with a trade war-like statement is not what the markets wanted to hear. martha: interesting. stuart, thank you so. bill: we'll see a drop at open. watch that. we're just getting started, folks. what was behind governor romney's strategy last night? we'll talk to the man who played president obama during the debate prep. senator robb portman and his home state of ohio. >> lots to talk about with him. heated exchange over the war in iraq and the effect the white house has on the future of that country. did president obama undo the progress that was made in iraq? former secretary of defense under president george w. bush, donald rumsfeld, is here on that. bill: also the hits keep coming, martha. herman cain on the economy and the issue of presidential leadership. >> every time you've offered an opinion you've been wrong. >> attacking me is not an agenda. at shell, we believe the world needs a broader mix of energies. that's why we're supplying natural gas t

that will allow us to create great businesses here in the united states, that's how we lose the competition, and unfortunately, governor romney's budget and his proposals would not allow us to make those investments. >> all right. governor? >> first of all, it's not government that makes business successful. it's not government investments that make businesses grow and hire people. let me also note that the greatest threat the world faces is a nuclear iran. let's talk about china. china has an interest that's very much like ours. in one respect. and that is, they want a stable world. they don't want a war. they don't want to see protectionism, they don't want to see the world break out into various chaos, they have to manufacture goods and put to work 20 million people to work coming out of the farms every year. coming into the city, wanting jobs. they want the economy to work and be free and open. we can be a partner with china. we don't have to be an adversary in any way, shape or form. we can work with them, collaborate with them, if they're willing to be responsible. now, they look at u
and they can say that the president of the united states and united states of america has stood on the right side of history. >> brian: with the arab spripping nothing positive. >> steve: i was amazed romney didn't bring up the muslim brotherhood ledd to extremist back in power. >> but the women's vote in the debate. one of the big things romney accomplished talking about how he is peace love not support war and he didn't think we needed to go to war in iran or send froopps in syria and all of that stuff was to debunk the idea the idea that he is a warmongered. women were worried he was a bush 43 shoot fromm the hip and he over that. the main thing that happened last night was not foreign policy. romney won the economic debate . obama's view on the economy is ridiculouss and doesn't defend his record well i think it will continue. rumny's momentum to the nomination. i think it will be unslackened and accelerate and more confident than ever we will have rum rhumb will have a land slide. 48 percent in the popular and 300 to 350 in the electoral vote. >> brian: out on a limb. >> i live on the l

of the president of the united states, which is to maintain the safety of the american people and i will not cut our military budget by a trillion dollars which is a combination of the budget cut the president has as well as a sequestration cut. that in my view is making our future less certain and less secure. >> bob, i would like to comment on this. first of all, that's not something i propose but congress has proposed. it will not happen. the budget we're talking about is not reducing our military spending, it's maintaining it. but i think governor romney maybe hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works. you mentioned the navy, for example. and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. well, governor, we have fewer horses and baiyonets because th military changed. we have aircraft carriers where planes land on them. we have the ships that go underwater. nuclear submarines and so the question is not a game of battleship where we're counting ships, it's what are our capabilities so when i sit down with the secretary of the navy and the joint chiefs of staff, we determine how
that potentially threaten the united states. we want to shrink those groups and networks and we can do that, but we're also going to have to maintain vigilance when it comes to terrorist activities. the truth is, al qaeda is much weaker than it was when i came into office, and they don't have the same capacities to attack the u.s. homeland and our allies as they did four years ago. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.

. the united states has the worst rate of industrialized nations of women dying in connection with pregnancy and childbirth. under obama care there will be 30 million people without essential health care by the year 2022. and during the bush and the obama years our constitution has been shredded while the impeerl presidency -- the imperial presidency expanded. the presidents that think they can take us to war on a pack of lies. with presidents that think federal government should have the authority to round anyone up, including u.s. citizens, and imprison them without charges, without trial, without legal representation, and without the right ofwe do '. habeous corpus. and our elected officials are sound asleep when the pentagon is warning that climate change is a greater long-term security risk to the united states than terrorism. so if you like the way things are going, vote democratic or republican. if you want real change, vote your conscience, vote justice. economic justice, social justice, environmental justice.

allies. i think the tension that existed between israel and the united states was very unfortunate i think also pulling our missile defense program out of poland in the way we did was also unfortunate in terms of if you will, disrupting the relationship in some ways as it existed between us. and with regards to standing for our principles. when the students took to the streets to tehran and people there protested, the green revolution occurred for the president to be silent, i thought, was an enofer must -- enormous mistake. we have to strong for our allies our military and strong economy. mr. president. >> america remains the one indispensable nation and the world needs a strong america and it is stronger now than when i came into office. because we ended the war in iraq, we were able to refocus our attention on not only the terrorist threat but also beginning a transition process in afghanistan. it also allowed us to refocus on alliances, relationships that have been neglected for a decade. and governor romney, our alliances have never been stronger. in asia, in europe, in africa,
an opportunity. if you were going to act, everybody knew this was an act of terrorism against the united states. there was ample warning, multiple requests for security, and instead, they have people there with handcuffs and tasers which is totally inadequate, especially given the high level of threat assessment that they already knew existed. the fact that they're going to commit assets a month later like greg says is too little far too late because we have four americans dead. >> can i make a point that the fact that you have people saying it's extremely political and exploitative to talk about libya. you can argue this is politically motivate by doing it the day before the date. >> this is quoting the ap story. details provided by three current and one former administration official as well as an analyst. i mean, isn't that -- the "new york times" article you said doesn't count. what about this? >> clearly whoever leaked that takes to your first point, that we should do it by surprise, obviously made that impossible. two things strike me. one, it means that they've identified who these peopl
, if the world, if the united states would just give -- would create a no-fly zone or allow the rebels to have rockets, he said that the war here that's claimed so many lives and killed so -- and caused so many people to be on the run, would end in two days, andrea? >> and ann, one of the people -- one of the refugees whom you spoke to, was a displaced woman named hoda. talk to me about her. it was a commelling interview -- compelling interview. >> she's one of about a million people who are basically living on the run inside syria, about half of them according to the united nations children, and she's living in a tent. she had just arrived that day. she arrived because her son was hurt in an aerial strike. he was wounded on his head and also in his leg. he had gotten some hospital care, but he was recovering in this tent and she was very upset. she was crying and saying, you know, essentially to the pilot of the plane, do you not have children? you know, and to president bashar assad, do you not -- do you want to see your children suffering in the way that is -- my son is suffering. she was v
a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. . >>> may i ask you, during the egyptian turmoil, there came a point where you said it was time for president mubarak to go, some thought perhaps we should have waited a while on that. do you have any regrets about that? >> no,i don't because i think that america has to stand with democracy. the notion that we would have tanks run over those young people who were in tahrir square is not the kind of american leadership that john f. kennedy talked about 50 years ago. what i also said that now that you have a democratically elected government in egypt, they have to make sure they take responsibility for protecting religious minorities. we put significant pressure on them to make sure they are doing that and recognize the rights of women which is critical throughout the region. the
in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin this hour with mitt romney's declaration that the united states must continue to shape world events in what his presidential campaign is labels as a major foreign policy address. romney outlined robust international policy that clearly rejects the isolationist voices in his own party. >> the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not to lead from behind, leaving our destiny at the mercy of events. unfortunately, that's exactly where we find ourselves in the middle east under president obama. >> while romney criticized the president over and over, his speech called for some of the same policies, actually, as the obama administration. one notable exception, arming syrian rebels. >> i'll work with our partners to identify and organize those members of the opposition who share our values. and then ensure that they obtain the arms they need to defeat assad's tanks and helicopters and fighter jets. >> romney also said there should be no daylight be
